Arts Advocacy

The arts are basic to education, community revitalization, economic development, reaching children at risk, bringing people together to celebrate tradition and innovation, and generally enhancing an environment for growth and progress. The joy and enlightenment derived from the arts, whether as a part of the audience, or as an active participant should be a right of every Alabamian.
